Sycamore Canyon Hike

Sycamore Canyon Hike

Sycamore Canyon starts just outside of Williams, Arizona and follows the creek south all the way down to the edge of Sedona and Cottonwood.

The hiking trails are rocky and it is hard to see the canyon in some spots because of the trees. We walked further back from the canyon along a trail through the trees and a field of wild Iris.

The first rocky trail that descended into the canyon that we came upon was a small pool of water where the kids spotted a water snake.

We climbed back up the canyon and then came back down another rocky trail to a local swimming hole. The path was a little steep, but not that bad. It was easy to navigate over the rocks to avoid the water.

In July, the water trickled over the rocks into the pool or swimming hole below. You can jump in from the rocks to your left or right. But you have to jump straight down in the middle so as to avoid jumping onto rocks slightly submerged in the water.
